Established in 2001 by Italian immigrant Giovanni Palumbo, our restaurant brings his authentic native dishes and introduces them to the residents of his beloved adopted home of America.
The world’s most authentic pizza is Pizza Napoletana. This variation maintains its status through the quality of local products that make up its recipe including herbs, garlic and tomatoes all grown in the volcanic ash of Mt. Vesuvio. This active volcano overlooks the city of Naples and Monte di Procida. Giovanni Palumbo, owner of Vesuvio’s Pizzeria, grew up at the foot of the volcano and observed its natural beauty every day. Giovanni has resided in the United States for more than seven years and has brought his culinary magic to various pizzerias. He decided to open his own pizzeria with the help of his family, which is a cross-section of old world and new.
His mother, father, and wife, Erica Faircloth Palumbo, all contribute to the restaurant. His parents still reside in Italy while his wife is a native of Burlington.
With an exceptional level of customer service, tastes that cannot be beat, and a comfortable ambiance, we stand ready serve your every need at Vesuvio’s Pizzeria.
